Intel 536 problem on Slackware 12.0.
I downloaded intel536 driver intel-536EP-, unpacked, cd into directory and wrote next command:

make clean

then i wrote:

make 536

but there is an error. Here it is:

Module precompile check
Current running kernel is:
/lib/modules... autoconf.h exists
autoconf.h matches running kernel
version.h matches running kernel
uname -r|grep "2.6" && \

ls Intel536.ko >/dev/null 2>&1 || uname -r | grep "2.6" && echo "Failed to build driver" && exit; \
if [ ]; then \
else \

You try to compile a 2008_11_15 version on a relatively old system.
Try to download an older version.
12.0 was released the Sun Jul 1 22:30:42 CDT 2007

Just one question before installing driver: Does I have to do any patch to kernel?

I found somewhere on my hard old version of driver intel-536EP- First and second steps now works without errors (commands make clean and make 536). But where I type:

make install

it gives me next output:

rm -f /etc/hamregistry.bin
bash Intel536_inst
running kernel
installing hamregistry, used for persistant storage
installing Intel536 driver
unknown distribution - no boot scripts have been installed
make: *** [install] Error 1

I installed driver and now works fine. Problem was script Intel536_inst but I took few changes on it and then installed driver. Thnx a lot.
